Medical facilities have an extensive number of staff. From administrators to maintenance personnel, and from orderlies to physicians, most staff members wear some type of identifying uniform or medical garment. When it comes to clean professional uniforms, in a medical environment, a garment rental program is the best available option. But why rent? Consider the following regarding medical facilities, and why renting is the best option for medical garments and scrubs.
The Importance of a Clean and Professional look
A uniform rental program provides regular cleaning and repair/replacement services for medical garments, maintenance uniforms and everything in between. This affords employees the clean professional appearance that is a must for all medical facilities. Most of us judge medical facilities based on what we see. Employees in uniforms, lab coats or scrubs that are not neat and clean will appear to be “unsanitary” in a medical setting. This reflects poorly upon the facility, possibly damaging its reputation. We can’t always rely on staff to maintain their garments as well as we ourselves would. A rental program can remove that wild card from the equation, bringing us to the next point.
The Multiple Benefits of Garment Rental
Medical facilities, especially hospitals, know their staff’s time is important. Medical professionals dedicate their lives to their jobs. Relieving them of the burden and expense of maintaining their uniforms has many benefits. First, you are guaranteed that all employees will be looking their best on a daily basis. Second, uniform service is a morale booster. Employees feel valued because the employer cares enough about their quality of life to implement such a program. Third, the neat, clean and unified appearance of facility employees’ uniforms is a positive reflection of the medical facility, the benefits of which are obvious. The cost of medical garment rental is already economical, but since garment care is included in the cost, it is not only viable, but for all its benefits it becomes too expensive not to use a garment rental service. Finally, if that is not enough, surveys show that many employees would be willing to share the minimal expense of a uniform program with their employer and any such expense is a tax write-off for the employee, further reducing the expense.
